To keep your car fresh, and looking its best, it’s wise to invest in some protective accessories that you can purchase (and replace, if necessary) cost effectively.
Be sure to ask for accessories that have been specifically designed, engineered and manufactured to fit with your particular make and model. If you’ve got a brand new Mitsubishi sitting in your driveway, it is recommended you use Mitsubishi Genuine Accessories, as they have been specifically designed and tested for your vehicle.
Useful exterior accessories include bonnet protectors, headlamp protectors, front mudflaps and weather shields. On the interior, particularly useful accessories can include a cargo area protector and carpet mats.
2. Get your car periodically serviced
Perhaps most importantly, you need to protect your investment with regular servicing and maintenance, in accordance with your vehicle’s periodic inspection and maintenance schedule. You can check yours here.
Genuine servicing and car maintenance of your vehicle by trained and accredited service staff will ensure the optimum performance, efficiency, safety and reliability of your vehicle.
When it comes to selling or trading in your vehicle, being able to show that it has been regularly serviced can make a huge big difference to its value.
7. Look after your paintwork
Correctly maintaining your car’s paintwork can make a huge difference when it comes to keeping it looking new over time.
Applying wax to your vehicle can help prevent the build up of dust and road chemicals on your paintwork. It’s wise to apply a wax solution after washing your vehicle, at least once every three months. Never wax your vehicle in direct sunlight and only apply wax after the surfaces have cooled.
When it comes to polishing your paintwork, only polish your vehicle if the paintwork has become stained or lost its lustre. Matt-finish parts and plastic bumpers also shouldn’t be polished as this may stain them or damage their finish.
If your paintwork is damaged due to flying stones or corrosion, you can use touch up paint. A paint code number can be found on the vehicle information code plate in the engine compartment of all Mitsubishi vehicles.
